As the planet of communication moves into the moody waters of Cancer, our ability to speak and think clearly gets messy. Tearful or emotional fits do not lend to clear articulation in thought, word or action. The mind has a tendency to process through an emotional filter now. This filter is often directly linked to our experiences in the past with family or loved ones. Thus, there is a tendency to react and assume before we process all of the information rationally. Knowing this, you may have to keep your feelings out of the sensitive mix, especially while conducting business.

The upside to this influence is the ability to tap into your intuition and your emotional gut. Our sensitivity levels are higher than usual, which helps to attune to the needs and feelings of others. The problem with this is that we can tend to read into a situation through a biased, emotional lens that may overlook important details or logical facts. Emotions are not exactly rational. It's best to make sure you aren't speaking or responding from a place of reacting or assuming during this time. Speak with care and make decisions slowly and thoughtfully to avoid swampy situations with coworkers.

If you feel under the attack of someone else's bad mood, trust that they probably aren't coming from the most level-headed place either. Keep a sense of humor and appeal to people's feelings with your choice of words. Communication will tend toward the sentimental and sappy side under this influence, so it's not necessarily the best time to access your business brain.
